Twitting and FBing for Karabakh: Famous Armenians worldwide share posts against Azeri aggression

Renowned Armenians and world-famous individuals supporting Armenians across the globe have been expressing their concern these days over the deadly fighting in Nagorno-Karabakh, sharing their prayers and condemning Azerbaijan for unleashing a new war.

Serj Tankian, an Armenian-American rock star, has blamed Turkey’s leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan for backing Azerbaijan in its aggression against Armenians in Nagorno-Karabakh.

“I guess Erdogan doesn’t read history. Nagorno-Karabakh’s rightful historical owners are Armenians. [Bolshevik leader Joseph] Stalin gave it to Azerbaijan,” Tankian commented on his Facebook account reacting to the Turkish leader’s statement that Karabakh will return to Azerbaijan one day. More than 8,000 people liked the post and 1,700 shared Tankian’s concern.

“Eastern Turkey will one day return to its rightful owners as well. This guy’s such a douche that anyone standing next to him or supporting him looks like a douche,” Tankian wrote.

Famous U.S. celebrity Kardashian sisters also commented on situation in Nagorno-Karabakh, shared their prayers and advocated for peace.

“Praying for everyone in Armenia and all around the world!” Kim Kardashian wrote on her instagram account with a hashtag #PrayForPeace and carrying a photo of Armenian armed forces with an Armenian trilocor. The Kardashian post received more than 38,000 comments and more than 450,000 likes.

Her sisters Kourtney and Khloe Kardashians also shared their prayers for Armenia and peace on their Facebook accounts.

U.S.-based Armenian soccer player Yura Movsisyan also expressed his solidarity with the nation and Armenian servicemen. He shared a photo with Armenian soldiers and a flag on a tank and wrote: “Together we are strong”. Movsisyan used #ArtsakhStrong hashtag.
